The origins of plumbing date back to Ancient Greek, Roman and Chinese civilizations. They needed portable water and wastewater removal for public baths, etc. The Romans introduced the aqueduct system and lead pipes. Eventually underground sewage and drainage systems were developed and sewage water was partially purified before disposing of it into rivers.
Present day plumbing systems consists of a network of pipes, valves, elbows, tees, and unions that are fitted and secured with pipe hangers and strapping. Pipes are now made of non-toxic material, like copper, brass and plastic. Plumbing in populated areas is regulated due to the impact on health and safety. Installation and repair work must be done according to plumbing and building codes.
